It looks like Intel is not just delaying a single server project, their entire roadmap has just slid significantly. SemiAccurate is now worried about what we are hearing from the company, things do not appear to be getting better.
Intel put some statements into the customer letter that were intended to sound soothing but as long as you don’t move your lips much when you read, were pretty transparent. The net effect was they horrified customers and OEMs which caused SemiAccurate to dig in to why those statements were made. The customers were right to be horrified, the dire picture we painted a year ago now looks rosy in comparison.
MacDailyNews Take: Desperation and failure are a potent mix and Intel is swimming in a vat of it.
The way is paved for Apple-powered and/or — dare we say it? (yes, we dare) — AMD-powered Macs.
